A Perfect Husband
by Douglas Wickard

A Sami Saxton Novel Book 1

An abandoned cabin...a diabolical killer...a hidden cemetery... a deadly secret is about to be uncovered.

Far from the neon blur of Manhattan -- the dizzy buzz of restaurants, theater openings and one too many cocktails -- located seventy-two miles outside the City in the sleepy, rural township of Montague, New Jersey, Sami Saxton is looking to rebuild her life. A rebirth one might call it. And, she intends to do this spiritual resurrection in a small, abandoned fishing cabin, built over forty years ago by her deceased father.

Not quite abandoned...

Sequestered deep within forty-two acres of tall pine trees, bristling brooks and fresh water lakes, Sami Saxton is about to fight for her life.

The hard truth...nobody will ever hear her scream!

Lovers at Heart
by
Melissa Foster

DescriptionHandsome, wealthy resort owner Treat Braden is used to getting what he wants. When Max Armstrong walked into his life six months earlier, he saw right through the efficient and capable façade she wore like a shield, to the sweet, sensual woman who lay beneath. She sparked an unfamiliar desire in him for more than a one-night stand, leaving his heart reeling and his blood boiling. But one mistake caused her to turn away, and now, after six months of longing for the one woman he cannot have, he's going home to try to forget her all together.

One-Knight Stand
by
Barbara Devlin

DescriptionAfter an injury at sea leaves Lance bedridden, and his rival captains Lance’s ship, he drowns in a dangerous mix of anger, frustration, and jealousy. Harboring more than physical wounds, a past tragedy haunts his present and future. When Cara proclaims him the man of her dreams, Lance vows, “I will never be your husband.” But Miss Perfect will not be deterred and acts completely out of character, making him an offer he dare not refuse, if only he can win her heart. For two people so alike in every way, what could possibly go wrong? In a word: Everything.

It's a Long Story: My Life
by
Willie Nelson

DescriptionWhat I say is that this is the story of my life, told as clear as a Texas sky and in the same rhythm that I lived it.

It's a story of restlessness and the purity of the moment and living right. Of my childhood in Abbott, Texas, to the Pacific Northwest, from Nashville to Hawaii and all the way back again. Of selling vacuum cleaners and encyclopedias while hosting radio shows and writing song after song, hoping to strike gold.

It's a story of true love, wild times, best friends, and barrooms, with a musical sound track ripping right through it.

My life gets lived on the road, at home, and on the road again, tried and true, and I've written it all down from my heart to yours.

Signed,
Willie Nelson


The Mountain
by
Richard Turner

DescriptionWhen allied intelligence discovers that the Germans are planning to secretly send a team to Tibet to look for an ancient and mysterious power source, they rush to stop them. Special Operations Executive agents, Captain James Shaw and Sergeant Duncan Bruce pick up the trail of the German team who are being aided by an exiled Afghan prince. However, they soon run up against a Tibetan secret society that has vowed to stop any foreigners from finding out the truth about what was hidden long ago in a sacred cave atop a tall, frozen, wind-swept mountain. Locked in a deadly race, Shaw and Bruce come to realize that something else is out there hidden in the blinding snow, something that is hunting them.

Three Days With Molly
by
Jan Romes

DescriptionFinn Riley is a hard-working country-rock star whose less-than-meager upbringing turned him into a guarded, self-proclaimed heartless bastard. He's about to embark on a summer concert tour and is in need of a personal assistant.

Molly Williams is a stressed-out, over-worked aide to a divorce lawyer. She's dealt with people suffering from heartache and irreconcilable differences for so long that she thinks all relationships are doomed. When her boss takes a sudden leave of absence, she's gifted with three-months to do whatever she wants. A friend talks her into stumping as Finn's assistant.

Can two work-aholics with trust issues lighten up long enough to follow their hearts? Or will they kill each other before the tour is over?
